Profile

Tom Helm, a fast bowler who generates pace and bounce, is regarded as one of the most promising young quicks in England. He signed for Middlesex in 2012 at 18 and a year later he impressed on his first-class debut against Yorkshire at Headingley, ending the game with match figures of 5-78. But his early career suffered from what he termed "a series of false starts". He had a brief spell on loan at Glamorgan in 2014 and after winning a place in Middlesex's Championship-opener against Nottinghamshire in 2015, he suffered a stress fracture and it turned out to be his only county appearance.
